How much can you drink before driving?
How much can you drink before driving? I am often asked by people how much you can drink before actually getting in and driving a car or motor vehicle depends on a lot of things. A lot of folks out there will say, “Don’t drink anything and drive a car.” That is not necessarily a bad advice. There is nothing wrong with taking an Uber or a Lyft. The law isn’t that you cannot drink before driving.
It is that you cannot be impaired and drive a motor vehicle. You cannot be impaired to the extent that it affects your clearness of mind. Most folks can drink a drink and be fine. Beyond that, for our strength depends on height, weight, metabolism. My advice is if you have any doubt in your mind at all, call a friend, call an Uber, call a Lyft. The small amount of embarrassment people perceive they might have in doing that is far less than being arrested for the DUI, spending a night in jail and having the great expense of having to hire an attorney.
